Severe weather threat slowing moving east this afternoon

Rain Moves out by late afternoon

KAUZ Midday Wednesday Weather

WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Heavy rain and the risk of hail and tornadoes is moving east across the Red River valley. The risk of severe thunderstorms is over for Wichita Falls and areas west. The chance of rain stays in the forecast through this afternoon, so we’ll still have to watch for rising waters in flood-prone areas. Most of the rain moves out of north Texas by early evening and skies will become clear overnight

We get a little payback to finish the week with pleasant weather expected both Thursday and Friday, when winds will be light and skies more sunny. Rain chances return for the weekend, but they’ll never be more than slight. Saturday will be mostly sunny with light south winds and highs in the 80s. Sunday will be a touch windier with slightly better rain chances. Temperatures will be warmer early next week with highs near 90.
